Know someone who loves electronics but doesn’t know the difference between an XBee, a soldering iron, and a SMA to uFL/u.FL/IPX/IPEX RF Adapter Cable? Want to buy the perfect gift but don’t know whether your Maker friend is a BeagleBone fan or a Rasp Pi devotee? Just a fan of Bruce Yan’s incredible design? If you’re any of these, or more, buy an Adafruit Gift Certificate – the perfect cyber-present for the electronics geek in your life.

When you don’t need non-contact or thermal imagery, this basic digital thermometer in Fahrenheit will serve your temperature-checking needs. Stick under the tongue or armpit and hold for about 40 seconds until the thermometer beeps and displays the temperature. The thermometer will automatically turn off if no longer in use.
This is the 6mm Wide Angle Lens, an add-on for the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera. It has a wide field of view and a variety of uses, like CCTV applications, or of course, cat photos. Includes a thumbscrew to quickly and easily assemble onto the HQ Camera Board.
This is the 16mm 10MP Telephoto Lens, an essential for the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera. It has a wide field of view and a variety of uses, like CCTV applications, or of course, cat photos. Telephoto lenses are great for distance shots – especially good when you need to take photos or videos of far away cats. Includes a thumbscrew to quickly and easily assemble onto the HQ Camera Board.
Snap, snap! There’s a new official camera board released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation!
The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera accessory from Raspberry Pi. It offers higher resolution (12.3 megapixels, compared to 8 megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2, and is designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors. Other lens form factors can be accommodated using third-party lens adapters.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
